Expansion of DBH healthcare free zone planned
The world's first integrated healthcare free zone, the Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC), recently announced the launch of the Al Razi complex of multi-specialty clinical buildings. The complex's establishment marks the further expansion of the DHCC as an important regional hub for the healthcare industry.
Development of the Al Razi complex is part of the first phase of development of the 4.1 million square feet clinical community, according to Gulf News. The new complex will be able to accommodate 130 healthcare service providers and 1,500 healthcare professionals.
"As a regional centre of excellence for medical services, medical education and life science research and development in the Middle East, the Dubai Healthcare City will offer advanced medical techniques and applications," said Ahmad Sharaf, Senior Vice President, Energy and Healthcare.
"Al Razi Medical Complex will bring together an integrated community of prominent healthcare providers from across the Middle East, Asia, Europe and the United States," Sharaf added.
The DHCC boasts internationally renowned healthcare providers offering patients and Dubai residents the highest standards in medical treatment. The proposed complex will be located amongst a professional group of prestigious clinical providers such as the Harvard Medical School Dubai Center (HMSDC), clinical research in the Dubai Harvard Foundation for Medical Research and the University Teaching Hospital at the Academic Medical Center.
Licensing framework for healthcare professionals and facilities are provided in collaboration with Harvard Medical International by the Center for Healthcare Planning and Quality.
